Trump Denies Using Vulgar Slur; Top Democrat Says He Said It

They taught their children to do the same.

On the eve of the eighth anniversary of the January 12, 2010, quake that devastated Haiti, the president, in the Oval Office, is said to have wondered aloud why he should allow immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations to enter the United States.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied: "We don't need more Haitians'". We have a long history of people thriving here who've come from dirt-poor countries or disgusting dictatorships.

Catholic leaders, including prominent archbishops and a group of sisters, are condemning President Trump's derogatory description of African countries and calling on the USA government to take steps to protect migrants.

The president will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration-two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country. It's a dignity many in this White House could learn from.

"At first you think, is it true?"

"It cuts like a knife", National Action Network State President Elder James Johnson said of the remarks.

She said that while the president and critics may argue over what was said in the DACA meeting, many in the immigrant community will remember the initial vulgar quote that was reported.

"It was so disturbing this morning to hear President Trump's comments reported all over the news calling my poor native land and African countries "s...hole" nations", Jean said in a statement to The Canadian Press.

Graham has not yet publicly commented on what the president said or on Durbin's remarks. Dick Durbin, who was present at the meeting, later affirmed that Trump used this exact language.

Window closing' for California mudslide searchers as death toll rises to 18
The Federal Emergency Management Agency warned that homes in California that had never been flooded before were also at risk now. Officials in Santa Barbara said at least 25 people were injured and the death toll could grow as search and rescue continued.

Of that population, 21,000 people are from African nations and most of which are from western Africa.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said. "There is no other word one can use but 'racist'".

The US ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, resigned his position, apparently in protest at Mr Trump's reported comments.

At a forum Friday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Ryan, R-Wis., said, "We just have to get it done".

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump", the union said.

US Democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez called Trump "a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution". But he attracts a disproportionate share of racists to support him.

Since taking office a year ago, Trump has pursued controversial policies aimed at curbing immigration into the United States as part of a hard-line "America First" agenda.

Around 10:15 a.m., Trump returned Durbin's call and was told about the main elements of the deal. It is grotesque and we must endure it for another three or seven years, given that the Republicans have a stranglehold on power right now and are more invested in holding onto that power than working for the greater good of all Americans.

Utah's Lt. Gov Spencer Cox said one of his sons, who is serving an LDS mission in Mozambique, meets new families there every day that love him and care for him.
